GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — It's an NFL cliche, the crafty cornerback fooling the rookie quarterback.
That's exactly what happened in the biggest play of Detroit's 17-3 victory over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.
Darius Slay, who tied for the lead in the NFL with eight interceptions last season, stepped in front of intended receiver Trent Sherfield, picked off Rosen's pass and returned it 67 yards for the game's first touchdown, putting his team up 10-0 in the third quarter.
DETROIT (AP) — The play went for an 82-yard gain, not a great moment for the Detroit defense. The way it ended epitomized the Lions' gritty victory.
Darius Slay hustled back and tackled DJ Moore on a long reception in the third quarter, preventing a Carolina touchdown. The Panthers eventually missed a field goal on that drive, and the Lions went on to win 20-19 on Sunday.

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — The Detroit Lions signed cornerback DeShawn Shead, a possible indication they're not certain cornerback Darius Slay will be cleared to play New England.
Detroit made the move Wednesday, four days before hosting the Patriots.
Slay left Sunday's loss at San Francisco with a concussion.
Shead was among Detroit's cuts entering this season. He started 22 games for Seattle from 2014-16.

DETROIT LIONS (9-7)
OPEN CAMP: July 27, Allen Park, Michigan

DETROIT (AP) — The Detroit Lions came up with a scheme to shut down Chicago's running game and force Bears rookie quarterback Mitchell Trubisky to throw a lot.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Dallas defensive end Randy Gregory is active for the first time this season against Detroit on Monday night after serving a 14-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.
